Oh, wait, wait….

Suddenly I understand the unreasoning hatred toward Texas I alluded to earlier in the week.

It seems that Warren Chisum, the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, weighs in on the side of those who feel that the Earth revolving around the Sun is a crackpot idea forwarded by a bunch of Jewish conspirators. The memo Chisum forwarded to legislators originates from a Georgia rep, but Good God!

Next we’ll be outlawing penicillin, because infections are obviously due to an imbalance of bodily humors. That whole medicine thing was started by a buncha Jews in medieval times, tryin’ ta invent socialized medicine!

I’m back to hating people again. My life is such a rollercoaster.

Some Inspiration

Well, perhaps not inspiration, but a bit of balm and perspective on War and our children, coming, from all places, an editorial in USA Today, via Fark. Jonathan Turley’s piece is low-key, pragmatic, and affecting in a way that I wish every voice on the op-ed page could emulate.

And on a completely unrelated note, Happy Year of the Pig, everyone! Gong Hee Fot Choy!
